Seeing Beyond the Stereotypes
Telling Authentic Latino/a/x/e Stories

A Guide for the Entertainment Industry
'Seeing Beyond The Stereotypes: Telling Authentic Latino/a/x/e Stories: A Guide for the Entertainment Industry' will drive media portrayals of the Latine community away from the current narrative and toward the authenticity and depth Latine stories deserve. The media guide analyzes the state of the Hollywood industry as it relates to the Latine community, debunks myths and stereotypes, defines popular terms, and features data on Latine culture and the power of our audience for the entertainment industry.

Facing a consistent lack of support for Latine projects across the country, as well as a transformational election year in November, NHMC collaborated with Latine creators, academics, and industry experts to publish this new guide, showing how portrayals of Latine communities on screen impact our lived experience and influences the exact policies that shape our lives.

Moving forward, NHMC plans to hold 1-1 sessions with studios and executives throughout the country, to collaborate and answer questions, while encouraging them to adopt the tenets of the media guide throughout their content. The customly designed sessions with top-level executives will be facilitated by President and CEO Brenda Victoria Castillo, creating a safe place for industry-leaders to have honest and authentic discussions covering their questions about the Latine community, private and off the record.
